Application for Research Degree Programmes

Research experience, with its training in logic and critical thinking, is necessary for many senior posts in industry; it is particularly valuable to those who plan to make their careers in research institutes, industrial research, teaching, or university life. We are opening application forresearch degree programmes (PhD/MPhil) all year around. For details, please feel free to visit here.

The New Micro-rocket Robot

The study of Dr. Yajing Shen and Dr. Lidai Wang on the usage of micro/nanorobots on drug delivery and tumor treatment in the human body has broadened the scope of microrobotic applications in the biomedical field, and brought new insights to microrobot design, actuation, and tracking in the blood environment. In the article 'Micro-rocket robot with all-optic actuating and tracking in blood' in the journal Light: Science & Applications, Dr. Shen and Dr. Wang discussed how these microrobots overcome various challenges in moving in the bloodstream of the human body.

Prof. Gary Feng as one of the Highly Cited Researchers

The research team led by Prof. Dong Sun has successfully deployed drug-carrying tiny robots to control the spread of cancerous tumours in mice. These cell-sized tiny robots, with just one billionth of a metre wide, are widely used in health care applications. Prof. Sun believes that these nanorobots have a good potential to cure human diseases in near future as Hong Kong has advanced medical and robotic technologies to solve the technical challenges ahead.
